Item Information

Title:
The Thayer parsonage
Description:
The parsonage of Rev. Nathaniel Thayer, D.D., is shown in this painting. Thayer, a lineal descendant of John Cotton, had a 47-year pastorate in Lancaster. After he and his wife died in the mid-19th century, Nathaniel Thayer II (the banker) had the house razed and had his Victorian villa built farther back from the road. One of the features from the property that he was careful to retain was the well sweep shown on the right.
